Door-to-door delivery service Sendle has added Toll to its partners, extending Sendle's coverage to the whole of Australia.
The idea behind Sendle is to give small businesses access to the delivery networks and prices usually only available to larger players.
It provides simple rates (eg, $9.75 to deliver anything up to 25kg or 100l within the same city. or $10.75 to deliver 2kg or 8l anywhere in the country - discounts are available for heavier users), online booking and tracking, and door-to-door delivery (no queuing at the Post Office).
The deal with Toll means Sendle can now deliver parcels anywhere in Australia.
And Toll benefits by gaining access to a large number of small business customers that it hasn't previously been able to work with.
Toll joins existing Sendle partners including Fastway and Couriers Please.
Sendle does not offer overnight express services, so if you need guaranteed next-day delivery it might not be for you. But if you or your customers can cope with one to two day delivery times between east coast cities or up to 10 days between Sydney and Perth for example, the savings can be significant.
The company also claims to be Australia's first 100 percent carbon neutral delivery service, and is B Corporation certified, meaning that it meets certain standards for social and environmental performance.
